At midday on Saturday hundreds of people took in a short but colourful parade through the city centre streets in a show of support for the event which is being held over the weekend.

The route took the revellers, including young families, from Victoria Street's junction with Skinner Street along Dudley Street, Queen Street, Princess Street and Lichfield Street ahead of the start of the stage performances in Old Market Square and Victoria Street.

Among the entertainers delighting visitors were DJ drag acts The Divine Miss M and RiiRii LePour, who were hosting cabaret sets at the Giffard Arms in Victoria Street.

Meanwhile crowds gathered in the square to cheer on singers including ex-Union J member Jaymi Hensley before headline acts Denise Van Outen and Duncan James take the stage.
